Yarn Bombing for Marjorie

MB_WEB_THUMB_380x253px.jpg

Marjorie Bligh was well known throughout Tasmania for writing helpful and entertaining advice on household management, craft, cooking, gardening, and even relationships.

QVMAG is the proud beneficiary of a large collection of Marjorie's work, which will be showcased in the 2019 exhibition, the Domestic Goddess: the life and work of Marjorie Bligh.

QVMAG has launched a community craft project to yarn bomb the museum's entrance in time for the exhibition.

From April 2018 we're gratefully accepting donations of yarn, clean plastic bags and washed stockings which, over the coming year, will be knitted and crocheted with the help of registered project participants, including talented community groups and outstanding textile artists.

There's a donation box in the foyer of the Museum at Inveresk for these goods. 

For craft enthusiasts wanting to be involved, please register by emailing our Senior Conservator Amy Bartlett by 21 May 2018.

Thank you and stay tuned for updates as this exciting project progresses!
